I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be a programmer," said the balloonist.

"I am" replied the woman,"How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help so far."

The woman below responded, "You must be a manager."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman,"You don't know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow "it's my fault."

In case anybody cares, those co-ordinates would put the balloonist about 70 miles south and 725 miles east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

In other words, hundreds of miles off the east coast of the U.S.--out in the f'king Atlantic Ocean.

So he must have been conversing with a goddam mermaid. blankstare
